The Center on Race and Social Problems’ (CRSP) Fellows Program is an internship opportunity for University of Pittsburgh Master's of Social Work students at the Homewood Children’s Village.  

The internship offers a structured, hands-on experience of teaching school children aged 5 -11 the skills they need to overcome academic and behavioral challenges.  The program is well established and Fellows work with experienced staff and teachers to develop and enhance training materials, identify potential research projects and make a valuable contribution to struggling local children and their community.
